Excellent location in front of Como lake. Excellent breakfast at the restaurant Il Vecchio Borgo where we really enjoyed lunch and a couple of dinners (please see my comments of the restaurant). Nice and friendly staff, I recommend it.

Was given an A/C remote at check in to this teeny room, but owner does not turn on A/C until Apr 15th. We were there on the 14th, and it was over 80 degrees in the room. Location was excellent for walking and exploring, but immediately next to train station and road, so lots of noise. Couldn't shut the window... More

I checked into this hotel after making a reservation on hotels. Com. I had room 101. Neither the WiFi or the heat worked. I had to stick my head through the window every time I wanted to do anything on my iphone. When I tried to call down to the front desk, I was unable to get anyone, because the... More

We always hope a hotel will make us feel at home when we are exploring the world and were so happy when we checked in at il Vecchio and got a friendly greeting!!!

Booked a Superior room with plenty of room, very happy considering some of the places we have already stayed at.

This hotel was a disappointment. The room, although well furnished (and with an excellent shower room) was small and noisy (street, neighbouring room, restaurant below). The rooms are situated in a block containing other properties, and are reached by two steep stone staircases and two heavy security doors. The big problem about this place, however, is the lack of parking... More

The check-in to Il Vecchio Borgo Relais is rather unusual. Wheel your bags around the footpath and look puzzled. Eventually someone waves you into the bar of the ground-floor restaurant of the same name (but without the "Relais"). Fill in the forms, hand over your passport, and a waiter guides you around the corner to a side doorway, where a... More

It is not that this hotel does things badly, but it does not do them particularly well. We paid for a superior double room with lake view. The room was up two flights of steep stairs and there is no lift. A staff member carried our cases up, we carried our cases down. Ours was a small room, clean and... More

“we got a room with a lake view but you have to note that trees do partially cover the view. Another tip - the cab we got did not know where the B&B is or even heard of it, so I suggest you tell them to get you to the bus station or even better its restaurant.”
